Finally!! After pestering the doctor staff, I have an appt to see the doctor again. WHEW.
The nurse tapes me and takes pictures - um ...I guess I'm approved?? ...the doctor walks in all smiling and asks if I'm ready to go. Of course!! YES, my heart is ok. Thank God. It's always good to hear that news.
One issue did come up with the pre-op testing. My liver enzemes were high. They have been high before and doctors assumed prior to this that it must be of the amount of pain meds I've taken over the years. This doctor said, it could be or it could be due to fat or something else. She wants to do a biopsy during the procedure to make sure. I love this doctor. I felt so taken care of. We talk about dates and I wait to hear when she can fit me in.
The nurse calls to schedule - may 5th but a day later the doctor calls and said she can get in me in the following tuesday. So I have 4 days to do my pre-op diet!! YIKES
